We are pleased to provide our card holders free admission to some of the best museums in the world. This program, generously sponsored by the Friends of the Library, allows Glen Ridge Library Card holders free admission to nearby museums by borrowing our membership passes.
These passes may be reserved by any Glen Ridge Library Card holder, 18 and over, with a library card in good standing with no fines or overdues. Patrons must present the Glen Ridge Library Card used to reserve the museum pass when picking up. Patrons must bring a $50.00 cash deposit (exact change) when picking up the pass that will be refunded when the pass is returned on time. Passes are loaned for three days, including the day the pass is to be picked up. Passes must be returned to the Library no later than one hour prior to closing on its due date. Passes cannot be returned in the book drop.
As of August 2, 2018 we will be using new reservation software that we hope you find more user-friendly. Any previously made reservations have been transferred to the new system. Please read the instructions below as information has changed.
